Hi johny_chan,

Here's some free scanners you can try (including avast! of course!)

If you're still having problems at the end, some more information would be useful:

  • Symptoms
  • Name of malware detected
  • Name & location of detected files
  • Your operating system

Good luck!

Look for and remove rootkits (hidden malware):



Panda Antirootkit

Blacklight

AVG Anti-Rootkit



Try a boot time scan with avast! Right click the scanner screen, select 'schedule a boot time scan' and reboot when requested.



Try a scan with DrWeb CureIT!



Try the usual free adware/spyware scanners.



AVG Anti-Spyware Free (Requires Win2k/XP)

Ad-Aware Free

Spybot Search & Destroy

SUPERAntiSpyware Free

a-Squared Free



Download, install and update the programs. Disconnect from the internet (pull the plug) before running scans in Safe Mode if possible.



Always select the option to quarantine any malware found rather than delete it, then you will be able to restore files or registry entries wrongly identified as malware- a rare but not unknown event for any malware scanner.



Try some online scans. (Disable avast! while scanning.)



F-Secure

BitDefender

Panda

Trend Micro Housecall



If still having problems, post a HijackThis! log.

Sorry if I repeat a lot of Frank's suggestions, but if a virus is replicant (coming and coming again), you could follow the general cleaning procedure:

1. Disable System Restore on Windows ME or Windows XP. System Restore cannot be disabled on Windows 9x and it's not available in Windows 2k. After boot you can enable System Restore again after step 3.

2. Clean your temporary files. You can use CleanUp or the Windows Advanced Care features for that.

3. Schedule a boot time scanning with avast. Start avast! > Right click the skin > Schedule a boot-time scanning. Select for scanning archives. Boot. Other option is scanning in SafeMode (repeatedly press F8 while booting).

4. It will be good if you download, install, update and run AVG Antispyware. Some users recommend SUPERantispyware, Spyware Terminator and/or a-squared (take care about false positives).
If any infection is detected, better and safer is send the file to Quarantine than to simple delete than.

5. If you still detecting any strange behavior or even you're sure you're not clean, maybe it will be good to test your machine with anti-rootkit applications. I suggest AVG or Panda.

6. Also, if you still detecting strange behaviors or you want to be sure you're clean, maybe making a HijackThis log to post here and, specially, scan and submit to on-line analysis the RunScanner log would help to identify the problem and the solution.

7. After you're clean, use the immunization of SpywareBlaster or, which is better, the Windows Advanced Care features of spyware/adware cleaning and removal.

8. Finally, when you're clean, check for insecure applications with Secunia Software Inspector to update insecure applications and avoid reinfection.
